Pseudofolliculitis Barbae Health Feed

Hi. I am 24 year old female. I am suffering from scalp folliculitis since past two years. I get white painful pustules on my head. Usually they are 5-7 in number but I have noticed once in 15 days I get a really bad break out where they increase to 20-25. They are all over my head. Frontal hair line. In between and even at the back of my head. They start with a reddish eruption and then convert into white pustules. I have sought different treatments. Initially I was on amoxicillin 500 mg twice a day. Then I was on linox 600 mg twice a day for 7 days along with topical clindamycin solution. This would clear up the pustules for 15 days but then they would return back worse than before. Skin prick test was also done and I avoided things which came positive on it like coconut, beans etc. I have tried homeopathy as well. I was given doses of hepar sulphur. Adel 73 and mezereum and a combination of others too but nothing really helped. Homeopathic medications would not dry it out. Have been given neem tablets too and neem oil which I took for 8 months along with turmeric tablets but that didn’t help too. I’m a student and my condition effects my studies a lot. Some days it gets difficult to even comb my hair hence I cannot go to college which effects my attendance. Kindly suggest me a way out of this terrible disease and I am losing hope.
